Apologies I haven’t written in a while.
After nearly two weeks of sickness, and about a month of being very low, I’m starting to feel more like myself again. So of course I thought to myself, why not get on here and torture myself with things I want, and will likely not get. Who doesn’t love a wish list?! As my birthday is in a few days I thought I’d start a tradition and do a birthday wish list every year! Hopefully you’ll enjoy.
A Nice Candle
We all know a gift of a candle is greatly received. My favourites are Jo Malone, and Kota candles. Kota candles recently brought out a new range and I’m very keen on one. They have also introduced some new scents, and Happy Hour is right up my street.
Jewellery Design Course
One of my biggest passions is jewellery. Hopefully that comes across in my blog and IG. After deciding to change careers I swore to myself, that even though I wasn’t working in jewellery anymore, I’d follow my passion for jewellery design. This will be my first step.
I hope you are all have a fantastic lead up to Christmas. I’m back again with another stocking filler gift guide.
If you’ve read Sundays post, you’ll know that I’m really trying to up my stocking game! This post is very similar to the previous one but, the main difference is that I’ve upped the price and just given you one gift idea. I think as the years go on this type of post will evolve, so I’d love your thoughts in the comment section down below.
Also just to mention again, I’m based in Jersey CI so all my prices are based on the prices available to me here.
Lime Crime is a brand I’ve always wanted to try, but am never sure about it. That being said, if I was to receive one in my stocking I’d be pleased. I love me a winter berry colour so when i saw this one I knew it had to be in the post. Unicorns are really big right now too so even if it’s just for the package, you know you’ve bought something just for the packing, we’ve all done it, it’ll go down a treat. This little beauty comes in at £14.45
I’ve been on the hunt for a new drugstore mascara, of course, didn’t know where to start. At the time it was just after Christmas and there were a few Christmas sets on sale. I’d been thinking of trying a few things from Soap & Glory so when I saw the set was on sale and there was a mascara and an eyeliner in it I was sold!
I ended up not trying the mascara for a few months because I’ve been trying to use up a product before moving onto the next. I’m still going strong with this! I hadn’t heard anything about the Soap & Glory mascara so didn’t know what to expect. As it was a gift set I couldn’t actually see what the wand would be like or the eyeliner, which was funny coz I can be SUPER fuzzy about them. I realise now I could have just gone down to the stand.
Hello lovelies, so this weeks post is a bit different. It’s that time of year again so of course Reasons is on the agenda! This year is no different! As always the excitement is brewing with-in me and of course Pinterest is my go to and with the new changes they’ve put into place, I’ve fallen back in love.
Here’s a quick look at my top festival MakeUp Looks from Pinterest and why!
- The Sheer Glitter Under Eye:
This is actually tricker to replicate then I thought so bare in mind if you wanna try replicate this you will need time, and a few small makeup brushes. This look has definitely inspired this years Reasons UK MakeUp Look.
Ok… Round two on writing this blog post! I need to stop blindly relying on the internet connection, So annoying.
I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, I’m obsessed with minis! I’m not really sure why to be honest, but it’s something that I’ve always gravitated to. I just think they are so cute, and of course so convenient.
Make-up wise I think it’s such a great way to try new products without the commitment! So when I saw on instagram that MAC would be bringing out minis lipsticks, I was rather excited! Purhaps a bit too excited!
My local MAC stockist is Voisons Department store, their MAC counter has their own instagram account so I pretty much spent a week checking it at every spare moment. Once they popped up I ran down on my break to get myself FAUX.
Unfortunately I hadn’t really thought about the fact that they probably would do EVERY single mac lippie in a mini, but I was quite confident that FAUX would be one of the chosen ones. Well… I was wrong!
I can’t lie, I was a bit miffed and I’m sure my face showed it! But I had the pleasure of being helped by the lovely Sandra (her Instagram is @vintagebellavitta). She’s always great and super helpful! So of course I walked out with two new mini lippies.
Like everything this year, this is late but as this week was my birthday I thought it would be the perfect time upload my birthday wish list.
1. Diptyque Candle
I adore candles, and for as long as I can remember a Diptyque candle has been on my wish list. I have no idea what scent or type I just know I would like one! ha ha
Sorry this is late! I was hoping to get it up on Thursday, but yet again that didn’t happen! I think I’ve got a new scheduling plan in place that I think will better suit my lifestyle. What I’ve been doing for the past however many years clearly isn’t working so I’m gonna change it up and see how we go.
I’m so excited to chat about this product! I have always wanted some Charlotte Tilbury and had been hinting for year. Finally “Santie” got the hint and brought me the Instant Look In Palette. I didn’t realise that there were three options, but the one I got was the Beauty Glow edition from Feelunique.
I was so so so excited to try it! I had heard so much hype from other bloggers and youtubers and knew it was going to be good! I was so good I even took the time to restrain myself and take photos.
